Since the advent of smartphones Emoji’s have had a rapid increase in its use all over the internet.
When viewed from our mobiles devices they look cute & perfect, but most of us have noticed characters that have been replaced by boxes with numbers in it while using our desktop PC’s or laptop’s.
Its due to the lack of a font support, which causes this issue to occur.
But Fear NOT!
Fedora Linux has you covered. And in 2 great ways! :D
The first great way would be to install the Gdouros Symbola package:
su -c "yum install gdouros-symbola-fonts"
You could install the Google Android Emoji Fonts package:
su -c "yum install google-android-emoji-fonts"
You can check out the extensive list of Emojis supported by the above fonts here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji
As much as I love Art, I love Star Wars and its never ending universe.
Though I haven’t read the books, I’ve watched all the films, and its blows me away every time.
Simply because there nothing like it and the possibilities are just infinite. The massiveness, the philosophy and the fight between the dark and the light – a great combo.
Darth Vader has been one of my favorite characters from the Star Wars saga.
I made a ball point sketch of him before with a ordinary Reynolds ball point pen, but as always I like taking my art further.
And Here came Inkscape and its vector graphics abilities to the rescue.
I love Open Source and this software in particular.
I’ve used it in several Graphic projects of mine and found it quite reliable and very easy to use.

Its been a long while since I’ve made any update to this theme.
Though the original ‘Yellow‘ YellowHint theme remains same I’ve managed to port to additional colours such as Cyan, Green, Orange, Pink & Red.
I’ve made sure that it still retains the Tron look & feel even with the new colour ports.
Thank You so much for those good download numbers! ^_^
Hope you like these new colours! :)

Well it has been fun and i know there maybe a lot of bugs with the initial release, but good things cant wait and so i bring YellowHint theme for GNOME Shell to the internet @ http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/YellowHint?content=159192

Heavily Inspired from Tron:Legacy and the standard Adwaita theme.
Try it out and njoy! :)
I happened to install fedora 18 live, and honestly it did take my life out when I noticed window 7 was not present in the boot loader list.
Well the fix is quite simple:
grub2-mkconfig > /tmp/boot.cfg
This command generates a new boot loader list by probing for the different OS’s installed on your system
cp /tmp/grub.cfg /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
This one is used to overwrite the previously made list
Reboot and Viola! :)
Ever walk into an official laptop, mobile or any electronic service centres these days?
If you do/did; ever bothered to know whats happens behind the “authorized personnel only” rooms? No?
Well today its a parts replacement centre. Nothing more!
You bring in your product, they find the fault and simply replace. Oh yes the bill follows if your not covered under warranty. :P
The actual use of a service centre existed in the good olden days when faulty components were actually repaired unlike the replacement trend of today.
Why the trend? Its actually cheaper for the company that sells the product. They spend less time fixing, keep customers happy and saves a hell a lot of time on both ends.
But these old guys, where actual service takes place, still exists. They are not official and sometimes off the books but get the job done very fast and with a huge decrease in budget if your product is out of warranty.
And none the less a new mentality for us humans which we feed to a generation that follows us.
Break; replace. Forget fixing ;)
